This video is heart wrenching.

Wow. This is amazing. The first 3-4 minutes of the video is very sad. But it is a very good watch.

This definitely hit me; especially the first minutes. Joel Burns certainly is a good man and it's great of him to stand up for gay rights. Shame to see that many suicides thanks to bullying. I hope the ones responsible feel sorry to the very end.

I didn't have time to watch the whole thing(I watched the first 4-5 minutes).

First off, I have zero support for gays/homosexuals with that said though... I'm against bulling of any kind... regardless of the reason. I think children of 12-18 are the worse off due to bulling because they already going through alot.

I will end it saying it was sad what happened to them.

Then I have one question for you: if you ever have a child, and he or she is homosexual. Would you stop supporting your child and become another example like some parents mentioned in this video?

he'll probably force them to go to a gay "correction" camp and ruin his life.

i watched the video, and while I am not homosexual, i empathise with this. it's awful that we live in a society where so many people are persecuted over something which has nothing to do with them, and doesn't affect them at all. heterosexuality doesn't make somebody human, or even correct. what makes someone human is compassion and morality. homosexuality isn't immoral. it's something you can't choose. even if you could choose it, so what? it's their life and somebody shouldn't be disallowed from having a consensual relationship with somebody else just because they are the same gender. that there are people calling it immoral, wrong, a sin, and referring to them as "faggots" disgusts me. they are not faggots. they are people. if these people are truly christian, they should love their neighbour as they would love themselves. virtually the whole of the book of leviticus is ignored nowadays because of the extremity of what it says, why is this not?

i must admit though, i gained a little faith in humanity in seeing he was given a standing ovation in texas.

religion is essentially irrational, so no reason can be reached. however, it probably lies somewhere in leviticus.

At some point in the not so distant future discrimination based on homophobia will be considered to be just as bad as discrimination based on racism.

But with regard to those suicides, I think that bullying isn't the only issue and removing it from the equation won't solve it. Kids these days just need to learn to cope with stress.
